Here is a video of quadcopters being used to bounce a ball and then bounce balls between two quadcopters.
This video demonstrates an MAV outfitted with a Kinect sensor flying indoors autonomously. This technology was developed at MIT’s Computer Science and Artificial Intelligence Laboratory and University of Washington’s Robotics and States Estimation Laboratory. MIT developed a system using the Microsoft Kinect as part of an autonomous flight controller, allowing navigation and mapping when a gps signal is not available
